What's for Dinner: Galician Fish Steaks

Date: Tue, Oct 27, 2009 Wine Tasting

Most Tunisian food is blazing hot, easily the hottest of the North African cuisines. This dish, however, plucked from the excellent cookbook Real Stew by Clifford Wright, highlights the flavors of the Maghreb without the excessive fiery spice. It is...

3 keys to cooking a great steak at home

Date: Sun, Sep 20, 2009 Wine Tasting

Wine review: 2006 Vertente Douro, Niepoort Portugal

Date: Thu, Sep 10, 2009 Wine Tasting

"Only those in the know drink Portuguese reds." This wine is another steal from Portugal, a country that is really grabbing my attention right now. The Douro region is renowned for port (the fortified wine), and over the past decade...

Date: Wed, Sep 2, 2009 Wine Tasting

Scotch Review: The Balvenie 15 year "single wood"

Date: Wed, Aug 12, 2009 Wine Tasting

The Balvenie is certainly becoming one of my favorite malts; it suits my palate, and apparently the region suits many other folks as well (4 out of the 5 top-selling single malts are Speysiders). There is something about wood finishes...
